*Life between Project Life*

I'm posting today with a couple of LO's that I have had time to do in between carrying on with Project Life!, which i still love, but am finding hard to find the time to create normal LO's because I'm worried i'll fall behind on PL! Are you finding that too?

End of Rant, Start of pretty things...
This LO was put together after a little trip to the park. I made a faux photobooth strip and kept the embellishments quite tame (i think)
Used some Sassafras and Making Memories letter stickers
These are a couple of old photos from last year but they are still so cute!
Used AC Thickers (natch) but these I'm not too keen on, i think its because they are so wide and hard to overlap!
Ill show you my PL weeks 8 and 9 soon...

*Project Life weeks 5,6 and 7*

Happy monday to everyone. I'm back with some more of my PL pages!

Here is Week 5, spent swimming, munching and lunchin!
Week 6- Baking and freezing with sub-zero temperatures brrrrr
Week 7- Half term- chillin, walking, spending time together doing fun things x
Didn't have enough space to type my diary notes so added a folded pocket which hides some of the journalling with a photo on the other side.
See you soon...

*Little Best Friends*

Afternoon ya'll, woop its Friday already which means the weekend can officially start soon-ish.
Made a very quick LO the other day and wanted to share it with you earlier but my BlogPress has been a bit poorly and won't publish anything :(
This must be the first page in zonks that I haven't used a sketch to help/inspire me! I'm feeling all free and creative. Yay!
Used some grey AC cardstock with some pink Thickers and some cute new washi tape from Paperchase that I just want to use on everything:)
Enjoy your weekends, i'll be back with some more of PL soon x

*Almost Instant Art*

Last week, after looking at a canvas in my cupboard (which had been there for like ever) I felt a real need to paint it, and since I am currently obsessed with chevrons, I knew what to paint!I started by masking off some zigzags before painting with a base colour, which I chose grey.
Then after the paint had dried, I carefully peeled off the tape and covered over the grey with some more masking tape.
Then I painted the remaining white space, either in a block colour or a mixture (like I did)I mixed pink blue and white to create a more interesting effect. I removed the tape once dried et voila!! almost instant art!!

*YIKES! its been like a trillion days since I last blogged! (guess what I'm making as one of my new years resolutions?) But I am back with one almighty post which beware *has many many photos!*

I have really enjoyed this years JYC because I decided just to use my camera apps to take the pic's (except Christmas day) and then have had them printed off in one go, using post-its as reminders as what photo goes where. It has really worked well! In past years I have felt that I have to have a photo on every page but now I am content with my own journalling and hand made embellishments x

I used an AC 6x6 album in Lime, which I have yet to decorate. So I have tried to combine some of the pics to make it easier to see, hope you like...

*Title page, Day 1*
*Day 2, Day 3*

*Day 5, includes a shaker page with glitter/confetti stitched with vellum*

*The Tuesday Post*

So it's only day two of half term and already I feel myself wishing the week away! It started (like many weeks) with great intensions of doing some fab things with Taye, but not many great adventures have been made yet!

So, I finished both these pages at the weekend (I think, it already feels ages ago :) This first one is a LO that I haven't used a sketch for! Can't remember the last time I created something all by myself, go me!
me and my taller but younger sister x
The paper girls, are from some Paperchase wrapping paper that I have cut into...
This page was based on Shimelle's starting point and I really like the collected feel to the page! I wanted it to have more dimension to it than my other pages the 3D hearts!
thats all folks x see you soon x

**The 100th Blog Post!!!**

Yay, I have finally reached my 100th post!! very exciting, but beware of this picture heavy post!
I have a couple things to share with you. This first LO was from Shimelle's 'starting point' that I played along but was a little bit late to enter but I still really like how it has turned out...
I used some acrylic paint and a Hipsta print taken in the summer! and lots of adhesive pearls
I love my new fiskars scalloped edge punch so much, that I am using it on practically every project at the moment..
My second page is Shimelle's SOTW which you can find here. Not totally sure if this LO looks completely finished to me and if I actually like it but perhaps if I leave it for a while and come back to it I might be able to realise what's missing
Maybe I need to add a few more embellies?
Oh and this is a special sneak at some little hand embroidery pieces that I have been working on recently, I will be selling them at a craft fayre in december.
If you have reached the bottom of this post, thank you so much!!! I will be creating some more layouts this week so will be back here again to show you! yay!! xxx
